2009 Serial Reader Challenge

January 1 - December 31, 2009

Beth at Just Your Average Carpool Queen is hosting a series challenge. The 2009 Serial Readers Challenge is designed for readers who like to read series or trilogies. Here are the rules:
  1. Read books in series/trilogies/related by author. (Julie Garwood’s Lion’s Lady, Castles, The Gift are related.)
  2. For a series to count you must read each book in that series during 2009 calendar year. (Rereads and audio books welcome!)
  3. If you previously started a series and do not wish to re-read, then only the titles read after 01/01/09 will count towards your total books read. You will not however get "credit" for total series read. Only series started and finished in 09 will count toward the prize for # of series read.
  4. Post your list on your blog and link it back to the post about the challenge. Your list is not something, you need to decide in advance. Please add as you go!
  5. Rate and review each title on your blog. When you do so, please label it SRC or Serial Readers Challenge so other participants can read your reviews and maybe be inspired to try a new series for ourselves.
  6. There will be prizes! Woo Hoo! Some of the prizes may be simple online trophies, and some will be book give-aways. (Titles to be determined) Prizes will be given for most books read, most # series read, most pages read, and some maybe at random!
  7. To wrap up the challenge next winter, comment on the post about the challenge linking your wrap-up post by December 31! Prizes will be awarded January 2010!
